REDISTRICTING UPDATE: Census Bureau to Release 2010 Census Redistricting Data for Alaska Next Week
Anchorage, AK - Today the U.S. Census Bureau announced that it anticipates releasing 2010 Census redistricting data for Alaska sometime next week.
The redistricting data package will include summaries of population totals, as well as data on race, Hispanic origin and voting age. These data will be presented for multiple geographies within the state, such as census blocks, tracts, voting districts, cities, boroughs and school districts.
Once the data has been received, the Alaska Redistricting Board will have 30 days to adopt a draft plan or plans. A final plan must be adopted within 60 days after that.
